Hi have been on Gluten free bread now for a month and no flare as yet. Also have been taken Acidophilus tablets from H&B which is also helping. Has anyone noticed putting on weight because of this condition? Or is it the bread? Any ideas.

    Hi, I try to eat gluten free bread and have moved to other gluten free products like flours and other GF products. I also take acidophilus, pukka aloe vera juice sometimes, Aspalls apple cider vinegar, turmeric as they are all natural anti-inflammatories (the pukka aloe juice is the only one I've found WITHOUT sugar or the nasty gut damaging sweeteners in e.g.aspartame etc.) I've found I have struggled much more than usual to lose weight with this condition.perhaps it's the not being able to eat at times means that one over indulges at others. Also bread of any kind will pile on the pounds unfortunately!

    Hi

    I have been diagnosed with Diverticular disease now for about a year first time I had a stigmoidoscopy I was shocked when I saw just how many Diverticular there were. Had about two lots of antibiotics and went on a high fibre diet that cleared up and was fine for about six months. At the beginning of this year I had another flare up and the doctor gave me antibiotics, felt fine then another flare up after a week then again given antibiotics felt fine then another and this went on for about three months and after my fourth set of antibiotics I said enough is enough and went on a bowel rest for a few days low fibre diet clear soups and practically starved myself (I wouldn't advocate anyone doing this, but I was desperate). Slowly am beginning to get back to normal, I'm still exhausted which my partner finds hard to accept he just thinks I'm being lazy. I've cut out most fibre from my diet, eating chicken fish, tinned fruit, have felt a lot better since finding this discussion thread on here and taking advice from people that are living with this. Am taking a haliborange a day plus h&b acidophilus 20 billion and a laxido if needed and am feeling much better. I did my own research into this disease there's quite a bit online if you do a deep dive, and my hugs and heart goes out to anyone living with this. X
